Boss ready for the challenge..
United manager Neil Warnock has spoken of his relief that he can kick-on with his re-building plans now the season is over.
The boss has been quick to air his frustration in recent weeks as the campaign fizzled out and our Play-Offs faded, but he is now determined to go full steam ahead in building a team for next term.
He has already outlined Wednesday as a key day when he will reveal which players he wants to be part of his revolution.
"It was feeling of relief that it's all over," said the boss. "I was disappointed with the way we lost on Saturday but I've always known from four or five weeks ago what type of job is was going to be and nothing changes.
"You saw on Saturday that the biggest things we've got at the moment is the fans. The challenge now is to give them something to cheer about and get results as well.
"The job is bigger than I thought and it might be even bigger - I don't know whether certain lads will re-sign. I'm going to have to play it by ear and be a magician but I'll give it my best shot, without a shadow of a doubt.
"I know the players I want and I've already got one in line which I'm pleased with and I've got to get the type of players who will revel in it all here. I need to be able to rely on people next year and that's not been the case this season.
"I do believe it can be done. I'm going to need a bit of luck with the signings and we're all going to have to pull in the same direction. But I'm optimistic and you've got to be in this game. You don't carry on managing at my age if you're not optimistic.
"I've always said, when I leave Leeds united I want to leave the club with a team they're proud of - a team that just needs the odd one or two players, not a massive change. I want a team they can be proud of irrespective of results."
